4th of July 2021

The Eastport 4th of July Committee has been meeting virtually to discuss upcoming plans for the 2021 “Old Home Week” celebration.  While the Committee is very encouraged by the State of Maine’s reopening plan, there are still many unknowns at this time.  We continue to meet virtually for now and will share any planned events on our Facebook Page and our website.  In the meantime, we strongly encourage everyone to begin making plans for decorating homes and storefronts and to share with us any ideas you may have about other activities that can be planned within the State’s guidelines.  We will be monitoring for updates to those guidelines in real time and adjusting our plans as we go.  This will be another challenging 4th, but there is definitely a spirit of optimism within your Committee and we are ready to celebrate 4th of July safely in any way that we can.  Stay tuned!
